|Answer: Without hearing the worker's side of the story it is impossible to say for sure. In general though, if the price was agreed for a specific work itinerary, and nothing extra was added after the price was fixed, the worker is not entitled to ask for more at the end.
There may be circumstances in which he can ask for more, such as if the price changes and he cannot complete the work without taking a financial
loss. However, this and other such possibilities can only be ascertained by hearing the full story from both parties.
